Jewish South Conference   

Nov/04/2016 - Nov/06/2016
Location: Temple Bnai Israel - Natchez

The Southern Jewish Historical Society is taking its annual conference to one of the smallest but most historic Jewish communities in the region: Natchez, Miss.

From a beautiful old synagogue with museum exhibits to a scenic setting on the Mississippi River, Natchez offers a fine setting for the 41st annual conference.

Attendees will gather under the dome of Temple Bnai Israel to learn about the states oldest Jewish community.

Topics to be discussed by panels and presenters the next two days include relations between Jews and gentiles, responses to natural disasters, the Ku Klux Klan, family history, and diaries and memoirs. Program details are available at

Conference attendees will have several options for walking tours featuring antebellum homes and important Jewish sites, so they wont be cooped up listening to papers all day.

Conference registration is $135 until Oct. 1, then rises to $150; it includes lunch and dinner Friday and lunch Saturday. You must be a member of the SJHS to register for the conference; membership is $36.
